The Portfolio Manager tile on the Strategies menu defaults to display the programs included in the portfolio, their parent levels, and any allocated work/projects/outcomes.

It is easy to modify the hierarchy to only display the rows that you want to see using the tree, list, and group buttons on the top of the screen. The tree option will display the entire tree including parent, program, and associated/allocated items. The list button allows you to select only one level of the hierarchy to view. If you only want to see a list of programs without the parent or lower levels, use the list button, then select program.

The Group button will filter the portfolio and allow you to focus by business capabilities (if configured), or attributes such as work status. Note that for attributes to be included in the drop down, they must be configured by the administrator to only display at PPL (the project level).

If the screen displays financial data, financials are summarized across attributes to give you up-to-date totals for cost, benefit, and effort by each value. In addition, the displayed hierarchy is replaced by the selected structure’s values and the type of entities (such as, programs and projects) supporting those values.

Clicking Tree or List clears the Group list’s settings.
